The Nomos Club Campus is something of a quirky one. The original Nomos Club can cite a relatively classic and simple dial as part of its strong visual appeal, yet the Campus simply doesn’t follow suit. Here, Nomos threw up a curveball, ramping up the playfulness to create a familiar, yet ultimately different dial aesthetic that was sure to divide enthusiasts between those who love it and those who don’t.
The Campus name and temperate color combinations of the series are supposed to make it perfect gift for any graduate, with a tacit understanding that this series of watches is deliberately unisex. Now, Nomos itself was less than halfway through its existence to date back when I graduated, and I don’t think I was expecting a four-figure watch as a gift anyway, but that shouldn’t preclude me from trying one now.
Today, I’m taking a closer look at the Club Campus, a watch I picked up last year, to see how it holds up against its older and more classic brother.
